Articles
'I was just 27 years old when I went to Burma. It was an experience that changed my life forever. Up until that time I had not really travelled anywhere at all, apart from one touring visit to Holland with a band I was singing with before the war, and I had certainly never been in an aeroplane. But I wanted to make a difference, to do my bit.' And she did. Written with her daughter, Virginia Lewis-Jones, this is a powerful and life-affirming account of the time Dame Vera Lynn spent with troops in wartime Burma. Based in part on a diary she kept, this book shows how her presence helped the soldiers, airmen and others who heard her sing.
